An amazing venue at Art Moments, The Universal Sea Budapest Festival, will be the Mikve, an old Jewish Ritual Bath.
Literally, it means “a gathering of waters” and it involves the concepts of “T’umah” (ritual impurity) and “Taharah” (ritual purity). It was designed for the Jewish rite of purification. So what place could be better to host our exhibition.
Come and celebrate with us the opening of our exhibition: 11 OCTOBER, 7 pm
WHERE?? Mikve, 1014 Budapest, Palota Street 1
Running from October 12-21, 2018 art installations and artworks from international artists are on display in this historic space of the Mikve. Included are contemporary creations, as always most sensitive imprints of a given society, reflecting on our problems of water pollution. Some of the works serve as indicators, others give individual perspectives of society by reflecting economy, religion, and culture.
Focusing on the main topic of the Art Moments: The Universal Sea Budapest Festival, this exhibition brings together works from students and invited artists. Young artists are an essential part of shaping new perspectives. Bringing their works to a historical site these participating artists will engage with the past while rethinking how we live in the present and what can happen in the future. On show will also be presented collaborative artworks by students from the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) and the Technical University of Berlin (TU) who, as part of the interdisciplinary seminar Microplastic and Medusae – Expeditions into H₂O, based their creations on research-travels to divers scientific laboratories specialised on microplastics.”
